Help India’s festival season sees DTH numbers rocket
Advertisement
#1
Almost two million people signed up for direct-to-home (DTH) TV packages in India during October, with strong take up spilling over in to November - thanks to the festival season and the tempting deals on offer.

This is almost double the monthly subscriber add-on rate recorded in the first half of 2010 by the country’s six DTH operators, according to Business Standard.

Dish TV added 355,000 subscribers in October and a similar number in the first half of November - having an incremental share of 40% of the market in the first week of November, according to Indian Television. The strength of demand for premium TV content has now earned Dish TV India over nine million subscribers.

“We are now less than a million short of the critical 10 million subscriber mark,” said Jawar Goel, managing director of Dish TV India. “Dish TV is close to crossing the hump and all set to reap benefits of constant innovation and product differentiation at the packaging, servicing and distribution end. Each milestone is an encouragement to achieve the next; the nine million mark has further boosted our determination to set new benchmarks by constantly challenging ourselves.”
